Tampa Bay Buccaneers Lead Philadelphia Eagles 17-14 at Halftime

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense has finally come to life.

Two first half touchdown passes from Mike Glennon to Vincent Jackson have put the Bucs on top at half time against the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 17-14.

Glennon connected with Jackson on a 24-yard strike, then followed that up with a 1-yard score, in which Jackson brilliantly got both feet down in bounds while making a spectacular catch.

Glennon is 12 of 18 for 107 yards with two touchdown passes while Jackson has four catches for 46 yards and two scores.

Rian Lindell got the Bucs on the board with a 38-yard field goal after the Eagles scored a touchdown on their opening drive which was finished by a Nick Foles 4-yard run.

The Bucs defense has played well yet again. Darrelle Revis forced a fumble after tackling LeSean McCoy and took the ball back for a touchdown but the call was reversed after it was deemed Revis was down by contact.

DeSean Jackson caught the Eagles other touchdown as he beat Revis in coverage, although it appeared as though Revis expected help from safety Mark Barron.

Lavonte David has been stellar, as he has four tackles as well as a sack.

With Mike Williams inactive, Chris Owusu took his place and he has two catches for 22 yards. Doug Martin has 48 yards on eight carries.
